Looking for registration deadlines, spring break or when grades are due? Our academic calendar has all of the important events for this academic year.
Dr. Jim Twombly, Professor of Political Science at Elmira College, was recently re-elected to a third consecutive term as Vice President of the New York State Political Science Association.
Twombly has been a regular presenter at the Association's annual meetings since 2012 and had previously served as Chair of its American Politics Section.
For the last two years, Twombly also served as Co-Program Chair for the annual meetings with Dr. Josh Meddaugh, Department Chair at Clayton State University in Georgia and a member of the Elmira College Class of 2007.
Along with his service, Twombly also presented a paper entitled "Considerable and Salutary Restraint: Effects of Polarization on U.S. Senate Dissent on Presidential Cabinet Nominations." The paper is part of an ongoing project that Twombly hopes will become the foundation for a book proposal this fall.
"I have to get through the manuscript for a second edition of Directing the Whirlwind that I wrote with Lisa K. Parshall of Daemen College in 2020 first," said Twombly. "We hope to have that off to Peter Lang Publishing by early July."
